Can You Etch a Photo into a Granite Bench Memorial?

Thinking of installing a granite memorial bench at the graveside of your loved one? If so, you may be wondering if it is possible to laser engrave a photo of them on the monument.

The short answer is yes. Most reputable monument companies offer this service.

The process is fairly simple. Once you provide the monument company with the image you would like to use, they will upload it into their laser design software. They will then use a CO2 laser system to fire a series of powerful explosions into the granite bench, removing the polished outer layer and creating a permanent etch in the exposed stone.

The quality of the final product resulted mainly from factors such as:

  • The experience of the monument company
  • The quality of the image it provides, and
  • The color of the stone (black is best)

The cost to engrave a photograph on a granite memorial bench varies from company to company.
